I have a couple of questions about the alignment and fitting functions
I've been using the 'align' and 'fit' functions of pymol apparently
quite successfully, but I found it difficult to make the 'rms' or
'rms_cur' functions actually report anything. I can take a structure
with identical sequence in two conformations and 'fit' it properly or I
can use 'align' and get an RMS value, but 'rms' doesn't report anything
directly. Now I did find that I could get the value with:
but I was surprised that I couldn't get it directly. After looking in
the code, I found I could do:
and then the value was reported. Should that not be the default?
Second question: Is it possible to get the identity of the the atoms
used by 'align'? I know from 'help align' that
"If object is not None, then align will create an object which
indicates which atoms were paired between the two structures"
but could we possibly have access to a list of atoms or residues
